THE OTHER SIDE

A Horror Story

Directed by Gabriel Clark

When Ben and Claire move into a new home the past comes back to haunt them...

October 25th - November 4th 2022

Two weeks of terror coming to 53two this Halloween.

Written by Andrew Long and Gabriel Clark.
Directed by Gabriel Clark.

"From the moment we stepped inside... I knew something was off. There was a coldness, and a deep feeling that something dreadful was going to happen..."

What are ghosts? When Claire’s Mother dies unexpectedly, she finds herself moving back into her childhood home with her fiancé Benjamin. As the past comes back to haunt them, she and her husband-to-be must confront their future together.

‘The Other Side’ follows a newly engaged couple as they navigate grief, loss, fear and their future while dealing with a house they didn’t want, the secrets they hold and the ghosts of their past...

Following their sell-out production of ‘We Won’t Fall’ (2020), Gabriel Clark and Andrew Long bring a new two-act horror story to the arches of 53two. We're kicking off our new season with our most ambitious story yet: a brand new horror to chill the spines of Manchester.
